PerfEA: Ongoing counselling towards strategic planning processes to implement the agro-ecological transition

Abstract : Since 2012 the French Ministry of Agriculture has launched an ambitious program called “Agro-Ecological Project for France”. This program aims to facilitate and support the agro-ecological farming systems transition. For supporting the agro-ecological transition, on the one hand, school farms in the French educational system have to propose an agro-ecological strategy. On the other hand, teachers have to use didactic processes that helps learners to understand and manage agro-ecological systems. For one year, six farms within agricultural high schools have implemented a strategic accompaniment method called PerfEA1 for helping them to build and manage a sustainable project for the school farm. On each farm, a group comprising teachers, school director, farm manager and farm technicians, has implemented the PerfEA methodology with the support of a facilitator. At the end of the exercise, the participating school farms have defined the values of the organization (e.g. innovation, sustainability, transmit and share knowledge), its missions (e.g. “Farm is a support of learning process and technical demonstration for students and local farmers”), and its vision of farm development (e.g. “Being an organic farm open to territory and his actors”). A balanced scorecard, composed with some strategic indicators (e.g.“Protein autonomy”, “Number of projects involving farm workers, students and teachers”), was constructed in order to assess and to pilot the performance of the school farm. Thinking and designing the strategy and its management tools have to be seen as a learning process. This article discusses how the ongoing counselling methodology as offered by PerfEA, to implement management strategy and its tools are learning supports which facilitate the agro-ecological transition. These learning are individual and organizational. According to loop-learning theories, they address to different extents: improvement of practice, revisiting assumption or reconsider underlying values and beliefs.
